Eat. Drink. Rest. Eat. Drink. Rest

Cleansed and Redeemed © 1996 Debbie Turner Chavers Revelation 1:5-6  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead,and the prince of the kings of the earth.  Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood. And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Feeling over whelmed and under helped in daily life?  Me too.  I am writing this to encourage you as well as myself to move forward.  Daily life and the weariness of the day in and day out toil of life can drain your smile right out of your soul!  Weariness in a world filled with trouble is a common complaint. Yes, God knew there would be days like this.  So He gave us His Son, His Spirit, and an instruction manual to keep us on course when the winds blow, or the waves try to knock our house down. AKA..the house being you and I. I am praying for you, where ever you are on this journey in lif

Everlasting to Everlasting

                                                                  Are You Thirsty?                                                       © 2006  Debbie Turner Chavers There has never been a moment in time that you were not of imminent concern to God. He had a plan before we were ever conceived.  Psalm 139; Jeremiah 31:3 God has always desired to bless and keep you from the very beginning.  The time is now, do not delay. The Lord is returning for his own.  Be ready. Mark 13 ~Debbie Psalm 90:2   Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. Psalm 103:17-18  But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children: To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. Psalm 106:48   Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all t

You Are Well Able

Recently I watched a broadcast of a group of young children making colorful hand prints on a wall for the "Hand of Hope" missions outreach of Joyce Meyer ministries. The children were making perfect little multi-colored hand prints.  But the one that drew my attention was the little blue one that was smeared on the wall. The precious child who smeared their hand print was the one that reached out and grabbed my attention, not the multitude of perfect hand prints. I don't know if this child knows her Heavenly Father yet, but her effort has already left a beautiful image with me. You may not think your life counts or that you are making a difference in the kingdom.  But this small, imperfect attempt at leaving a mark, resonated with me. Your every day life with its possible triumphs and mistakes are impacting someone. Don't give up.  God can and will use your "smeared hand print." In life we put our hands too many things, at times successfully and som

Worthy of All Praise

The LORD, the Lord God Almighty, just and true is he.  He has loved us with an everlasting love. Worship Him, for He is worthy of all praise. ~Debbie Revelation 4:8  And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night  saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty , which was, and is, and is to come. Revelation 11:17  Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty , which art, and wast, and art to come;  because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. Revelation 15:3  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty ;  just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Revelation 16:7  And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty , true and righteous are thy judgements. Revelation 21:22  And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the tem
